    was trying to print up my tax returns and epson printer wasn't doing its job (paper was coming out blank) so i hit the printer HARD with my fist and now it just makes funny noises. any suggestions on what the problem might be? oh yeah, it looks like i may have broken the top part into many pieces. could that be part of the problem? :confused:

    Just load it up in the truck and I'll take it off your hands for ya. Seems you need a class in printer communications. Always talk to your printer first then use a hammer, it saves the pain/injury upon yourself. And ya should have checked the ink!

    Spend some of that moldy money and get a new one!

    Probably was just out of ink :eek:

    I hope you don't treat your fishing gear and boat that way. They would probably start making funny noises too!
     
  5. Have you tried kicking it? Sometimes a good firm kick can reverse the damage caused by the punch or at least that has been my experience with televisions as I use to tinker around working part time in an appliance repair store. Also, you might try a good hard headbutt on your printer but I recommend that you don't use this technique on a TV.

    If you have not used it in awhile the ink nozzles probably dried up.
